We specialize in your overall health and healing, complete with a comprehensive review of your past labs, symptoms and conditions to help direct you towards the road to better health. Utilizing state of the art tests, we can help you take the guesswork out of diagnosing your symptoms, and deliver real results.
You may have already heard that your gut, or digestive system is your second brain, and an integral part of your overall health influencing your immune system. Gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea may only be not so subtle signs that something more needs attention down below. Whether or not you are experiencing symptoms on a regular basis or just on occasion, you may consider a comprehensive stool test to analyze for a large variety of pathogens that may be taking over your gut health, consuming your nutrients and leaving you with uncomfortable symptoms.

Once the test is complete your doctor will receive the report, and set up an appointment to review your results with you.
Our consultations include a complete review of your results and a 3-6 month program designed to help support your normal GI function.

HORMONE TESTING THROUGH SALIVA
Feelings of chronic fatigue, exhaustion, emotional mood swings, and even trouble sleeping can have a major impact on several areas of your life, and health. Testing your hormone levels may provide valuable information when considering symptoms associated with your thyroid, adrenal and overall hormonal health regardless of your age, gender or phase in life.
Saliva is one of the best ways to test free hormone levels in your body. When blood serum is taken to analyze for hormone balance, the result includes both protein-bound and unbound (free) hormones. The unbound, or free hormones are the only ones available for active use in the body and therefore more clinically relevant when making informed decisions to support your hormonal and thyroid health. We test for estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA (energy production), and cortisol (energy production, stress response). Estradiol, estriol, and estrone are also available as add-on tests. Results usually indicate whether there are concerns with your adrenal health, thyroid function and estrogen (or progesterone) dominance.
WHO SHOULD BE TESTED?
Anyone experiencing any of the following symptoms could be tested for hormonal imbalances to provide information clinically relevant to supporting their hormonal health:
- hormonal changes related to aging (including menopause)
- symptoms of PMS
- immune issues
- blood sugar problems
- weight changes or overweight
Hormone saliva testing can be done at the convenience of your home, and analyzed by our team of doctors to produce a detailed plan of action to help support your hormonal health and other symptoms.
IgG FOOD ALLERGY TEST
IgG are Immunoglobulin Antibodies, which are present in your body fluids. They help in your first line of immune defense in cases of infection but do not release histamine like IgE reactions, which is commonly associated with the itchy, watery eyes, flushing, hives, and swelling allergic reactions. IgG antibodies produce a more subtle reaction which ranges from GI symptoms such as bloating and nausea, to less obvious reactions such as headaches, fatigue and mood swings. Left undiagnosed you may be seeking treatment for a side effect of an unrecognized allergic reaction.
IgG tests can help identify highly reactive foods so you can remove or restrict your intake, while our doctors can work with rebuilding your body's tolerance to certain foods through our non-invasive testing to reduce or eliminate your symptoms. Recent studies and clinical research suggests that the food allergies identified through IgG tests may be significant when considering chronic health issues. Altering your food intake to support your gut and digestive system based on your food sensitivities may reduce immediate stress and inflammation which could have multiple benefits to your health.
IgG Food Allergy test is available through a dried blood spot test which is easy and convenient to complete at home!
